Rafaela Who Drinks Coconut & Papaya Juice on Tuesdays

  • Rafaela's husband locks his wife indoors when he goes out. He's afraid she'll run away, because she's so beautiful.
  • On Tuesdays, Rafaela's husband stays out late, and Rafaela leans out the window to listen to the music coming from the neighborhood bar.
  • Rafaela asks Esperanza and her friends to go to the store to buy her some coconut or papaya juice. She throws them a dollar from the balcony, and they go get it for her.
